Is It True That Henderson Can’t Play Anymore?

The Raiders over the weekend picked up former Jaguar Pro Bowler D-linemen John Henderson. There’s some conflicting reports about Henderson, and if he can play or not anymore. The National Football Post reports:

One, a veteran personnel executive tells the Oakland Tribune that the 6-foot-7, 335-pound former Pro Bowl selection, “can’t play anymore.”

And then there’s the back story of how he came to wind up in Oakland.

There was the report from the San Francisco Chronicle that the Raiders were willing to trade a fifth-round pick for Henderson and the Jaguars offered him for a fourth-round selection before ultimately cutting him and the Raiders signed him.

According to the Florida Times-Union, it’s not true.

“The Raiders put out a story that they offered a fifth round pick for Henderson and the Jags turned it down,” beat writer Vito Stellino wrote on his Twitter account. “The raiders didn’t offer any pick for henderson but hey why let the truth get in the way of a good story, and then the raiders signed him for nothing when he was cut..makes the raiders look very savvy. good story but it’s not true “
